I only knew a little due to living so far away from you all. But your big smile you used to give as a little guy is burned in my memory of you. The 24 th the day after receiving the sad news of losing you. I was on my way to picking up me Mom. I was thinking of how sad everyone must be. A song was playing on my radio usally I flip stations but for some reason I just really listen to this song it happen to be every things gonna be alright. As I realized the song I looked to the sky and an Eagle flew across the road so I turned to keep looking at it then I could not see it again. So as I looked ahead he was flying with me as the song got over he flew away. I just wanted to share this with all ...of our loved ones. Fly high bud you will be missed. Hugs to Tim Chad Shannon and Darlene. 💘 you all so much.Read more

Heartbreaking, Duane was too young to pass. My favorite memories of him are him playing when he was a tot with my younger siblings. He was such an adorable little boy. Many prayers and hugs to his family.
